A Peek Inside the Classroom...

I came into school this week to work on my classroom.  You see, I had shared a room last year with another teacher and since our enrollment went up, I was given my own classroom this year, Woo Hoo!!  Which is GREAT, but it comes with a lot of stuff to do!!!
I have an empty canvas!! 
 This is the view from the door as you walk in. It is a large room, but I'm bummed because my windows don't open.  I love fresh air and wind blowing through the windows... but, oh well.
All my furniture needed to be ordered, as well as curriculum supplies.  I had boxes of furniture in my room, but no curriculum stuff yet.  Hoping it will come before school starts.
 Here is the wall next to the door.  That is where my desk will be and that door leads to the bathroom.  It has the cutest little toilet!!
 I have this weird bump out on the next wall... It will hold my cabinets, water cooler, and fridge.  I inherited an awful fridge from our concession stand that is huge.  But, I need it to store lunch boxes so I will take what I can get :)
 That is one of my wonderful sons, who gave up his whole day to help me unpack boxes and get situated.  He was a real Godsend!!  Over on the wall is all our nap mats... they are brand new and smell like rubber, so we need to air them out.  I'm glad I remembered from last year.  Those large boxes are my new shelves and my desk. 

 Just another shot of the back wall...
 This wall will house my Smart Board and white boards.  I was thinking that it will take up a lot of wall space and I am worried I won't have any space for bulletin boards, kids art work, or some of my curriculum materials.  Oh the dilemma's!!
 Now we are back where we started... 
 I am losing sleep over trying to imagine in my head the best scenarios for where all my centers should be.  How do I utilize all the empty space and yet keep the flow of the room going.  You will have to stay tuned to see how the room progresses :) I will be going in on Monday, hopefully I will have some more of my ordered materials come in, and I can get things going .





  1. Can't wait to see how it turns out! :) They are renovating our building this summer and I was just told this week that I can't get into my room until the 12th... and I have kiddos coming for k classroom visits and assessments on the 13th!!! I see an ALL NIGHTER in my future. (Actually... a few!) UGH! Miss you! Can't wait until I Teach K next year!!!

    1. Oh man Holly!! That is a lot of work to get done. I hope it is all sorted in boxes that will help getting it back on the shelves easier. I hope you post some before and afters so I can see how it went!!!

  2. Good luck with everything! Your room looks spacious, the smart board is such a blessing I wish I had.

  3. Hi Michelle, Looks like you are gonna have alot of room! Can't wait to see it when it's all set up! Take lots of after pictures. When do you all start school? Do I not follow you on bloglovin?
